    DNP program begins accepting enrollment applications for July 2013 start

    DAVENPORT, IA—Kaplan University, a leader in higher education innovation, today announced its commitment to offer $1 million in scholarships to qualifying nursing students in 2013-2014.

    The announcement comes on the heels of news that the Higher Learning Commission, the accrediting body for the University, approved the first doctoral program for Kaplan University’s School of Nursing. Kaplan University began accepting enrollment applications for its new online DNP program on May 15 for a July 31, 2013 start in three doctoral specializations; nurse executive, adult-gerontology nurse practitioner, and family nurse practitioner.

    The scholarships will be provided to RN-to-BSN students as well as MSN and DNP students. Specifically, the University will offer:

    • Achievement Scholarships for RN-to-BSN students. Kaplan University will provide scholarships up to $12,750 towards tuition for newly enrolled students who are academically qualified and maintain their performance in the program.
    • Achievement Scholarships for MSN and DNP students: Kaplan University will provide scholarships up to $7,500 towards tuition for newly enrolled nursing graduate students who are academically qualified and maintain their performance in these graduate programs.
    • Single Parent Scholarships for Nursing Graduate students: Kaplan University will provide scholarships up to $7,500 to single parent nursing graduate students who are academically qualified and maintain their performance in these programs.
    • Nursing Scholarships for Spouses of Military Service Members who are enrolled in Kaplan University’s RN-to-BSN program. In partnership with the American Freedom Foundation, this scholarship will provide more than a 50% reduction in tuition for these students.

    “Kaplan University’s longstanding commitment to the nursing profession has never been stronger. Programmatically, our offering is expanding, opening the doors of opportunity to more and more students and nurses across the education continuum,” said Dr. John Danaher, President of Kaplan University’s College of Health Studies. Kaplan University began offering its online BSN program nearly a decade ago in 2004. Kaplan Higher Education is one of the largest educators of nurses in the United States.
